Roberts Country: Sir Charles G.D. Roberts and the Tantramar

by Charles H.H. Scobie

Roberts Country: Sir Charles G.D. Roberts and the Tantramar [cover]

Sir Charles G.D. Roberts (1860–1943), the Father of Canadian Literature, spent the first fourteen years of his life in Westcock, in the Tantramar area of south-eastern New Brunswick.

This book shows how his boyhood in the Tantramar profoundly influenced much of Roberts’ later work: his historical writings, his animal stories, his novels and above all his poetry.

With the help of over thirty illustrations and three maps the book also provides the visitor with a guide to Roberts Country.

Cost: $19.95
